Grow your business with Union River Center for Innovation!


DREAM Workshop Series

You are the expert in your business’s products and services, but you may need guidance with some elements of business growth and development. We’re here to help! We’ve partnered with local community experts to hold informative seminars regarding all facets of starting and maintaining a business, with topics ranging from accounting, to law, conflict resolution, marketing, and everything in between! The DREAM workshop series is a series of free and open to the public seminars that aim to help local business owners develop their business strategies and gain the information they need to run a successful business.

Held virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic, these seminars aim to cover topics that are important to you, no matter what stage of business growth you are in. Many of our presenters are also business coaches for our incubator tenants, so they understand the specific challenges Maine small businesses face. They are all expertly-equipped to share their valuable knowledge with you, and help you understand how these topics are relevant to your startup or small business.

Previous expert presenters include WardGreen Group, The Accounting Coach, Osborne Media, Pulse Marketing Agency, and Rudman Winchell Counselors at Law.

All seminars are free admission and open to the public. Seminars are typically held monthly on Thursdays. Please see our event calendar, or check out our Facebook or Eventbrite pages for specific dates, times, and topics. The 2021-2022 season is scheduled to begin in October – stay tuned for more information!
